All-round legal advice on specific administrative proceedings, ranging from land use planning and amendments to land use plans, preparation of designs and related documents, through to obtaining the administrative authorities’ opinions required for the issue of the relevant zoning decision, the building permit and, finally, the occupancy permit, at all times taking into account all requirements of the laws and regulations covering environmental protection.
A real estate transaction, whether a sale, purchase or lease, involves certain risks caused not only by laws and regulations, which are often very strict as to the form and content of the individual legal acts, but also by what frequently are rather problematic administrative proceedings and dealings with public authorities. The idea of providing comprehensive legal services in this area is to circumvent all potential risks that may arise in such transactions.
As part of property- and development-related services, we also offer the know-how that we have built in assisting during the completion of complicated development projects for many years. Development-related legal services usually start with an up-front analysis of the legal status of the real estate in question, placing it in context with the client’s requirements, and the subsequent set-up of the legal framework between the owner and contractors, and continue with client representation in the related administrative proceedings, up to the final settings of the legal relationships – following project completion – with future tenants or other users.
Our work centres on providing legal services to business entities. Accordingly, we have developed our lines of expertise with a view to covering all areas and all phases of doing business, including those emergencies that businesses may face.
